AMD is reported to prepare at least three SKUs of its Radeon RX Vega. The AMD's architecture is rumored to be much faster than GeForce GTX 10 Series from NVIDIA.

A hardware reviewer Tech PowerUp found three leaks of 3D Mark valuation points of an unknown GPU that possibly refer to three Radeon RX Vega graphics cards. The three graphics cards in the benchmark are identified with their SKUs as 687F: C1, 687F: C2 and 687F: C3.

The SKUs of the three graphics cards are believed to be the identification number of Radeon RX Vega from AMD. All of the graphics cards are powered with 8GB of the second generation of High Bandwidth Memory RAM (HBM2). The 3D benchmark shows that the slowest of the three is faster than GeForce GTX 1070, while the fastest one is equal to GeForce GTX 1080.

Gamers and hardware enthusiasts have been waiting for the launching of Radeon RX Vega, the new GPU architecture from AMD. Radeon RX Vega will be a head-to-head competitor of the GeForce GTX 10 Series from NVIDIA. This latest leaked benchmark indicated that direct competition between the two manufacturers is very stiff.

Earlier this week, AMD CEO, Lisa Su announced the expected release schedule of Radeon RX Vega during the first quarter earning call to investors and shareholders on Monday, May 1. According to PC World, Radeon RX Vega with the Vega GPU will hit the market this quarter. The new GPU is targeting the gaming, professional and data center markets.

Since AMD announced its new Vega GPU architecture in January, the Radeon RX Vega graphics card series has become the most anticipated graphics card of this year. AMD prepares Vega architecture as the answer to the new Pascal architecture from NVIDIA.

Radeon RX Vega and its Vega architecture will have more advanced technology than the existing AMD Polaris architecture. Vega GPU architecture is design to deliver the highest performance in the graphics processing with its unique HBM2 RAM interface. The stream of data into the GPU is managed by the High Bandwidth Controller to reduce the bottleneck and lag. Watch the introduction of Vega at the CES 2017 in January below:
